It was the oil, stupid

Former chief UN weapon's inspector, Hans Blix, now says that the Iraq invasion was motivated by oil. ""I did not think so at first. But the US is incredibly dependent on oil. They wanted to secure oil in case competition on the world market becomes too hard."

UPDATE 1: A Western humanitarian worker, just returned from Iraq, paints an alternative picture of the country and unlike most journalists has actually left the "comfort" of Baghdad's Green Zone.

Anthony,

Have you seen this film yet? If not, I think that you would be really interested.

Thanks for the tip. I've seen the film. Amazing stuff. In fact, it was my first blog post. Check it out.
As ever, this story never made it to Australia.
